Cool, dry air in your home causes more issues than just icy hands and feet in the frosty months. An absence of humidity can irritate your lungs, dry out your skin and lead to bloody noses. Like you, your home needs humidity to keep it in its best condition. Woodwork in your rooms—including hardwood floors—can lose moisture to the dry air and become damaged. Whole-home humidifiers can restore that moisture in your home’s air. You’ll be more comfortable and healthier as a result. Brookwood Inc in Newton carries two essential configurations:
- Bypass humidifiers draw warm air from heat ducts and pass it through a water panel. Water vapor is absorbed into the air, humidity is replaced in the air and is dispersed throughout your home.
- Fan-powered humidifiers work in a similar style, but they also have a fan that blows air across the water panel for increased water evaporation.
A well-maintained humidifier can keep you happy, healthy and comfortable in your home all year.
Simple Maintenance Ensures Efficiency and Inhibits Mold Growth
Whole-home humidifiers have easy maintenance. If your humidifier has a water panel, like a Lennox Healthy Climate Whole-Home Humidifier
, the water pad inside only must be changed once or twice annually. This may change depending on the extent of debris that moves through your home’s ventilation system. If you have furry friends or have done extensive home improvement projects within your home, you will likely need to change it more often. Whole-home humidifiers may not operate at peak efficiency if the water panel is ignored.
Lennox models have humidifier pads explicitly for uniform, high evaporation and scale traps to trap mineral deposits that would otherwise damage your humidifier
. Sitting water, excess minerals and other solid residue not trapped by the replaceable humidifier pad are flushed down the drain. This is the most effective, cost-efficient technique of disposing of minerals.
